Why combination treatments are necessary for long term results!

If I had a penny for every time a client came in for my professional advice and then asked ‘what 1 thing should I have’ out of treatment plan I’d proposed, I would be on a beach in Barbados right now!

This months post is about combination treatments, why they are important and why they are necessary for safe practice and long term treatment results.

Medical needling, what to look for and what to expect!

Hello Skin and Shitters, it feels like such a long time since my last post and when I was thinking about what to write about, I couldn’t believe that I hadn’t already written a post on medical needling/micro needling/collagen induction therapy (honestly why does one treatment need so many names?)

There has been backlash against certain medical needling devices in the last few months as many devices were scrutinised for not being sanitary, due to the blood caused by the treatment being sucked back into the device!

This latest blog post is about what to expect with a medical needling treatment and what you should be looking out for should you wish to have the treatment.

Everything you need to know about your lymphatic system and why it’s important!

As part of consultations in my clinic, my goal is to educate my clients so they understand how and why the treatments I perform on them will benefit their skin.

My most popular treatment is HydraFacial, a 6 in 1 medical grade facial. The 6 stages of HydraFacial include; Lymphatic drainage, deep cleanse & exfoliation, light glycolic peel, extractions, hydration infusion & LED light therapy.

What I have discovered from doing so many of these consultations is that most people don’t know anything about their lymphatic system, which has an incredibly important role in our bodies. This week’s post is all about the lymphatic system, the health impacts from it not working properly and how to speed it up!

Make up is such a wonderful thing, I hear some women complain about it being another thing forced upon us by the patriarchy, but I feel lucky that when I’m hungover and looking like death, it’s socially acceptable for me to stick on concealer or mascara and look half human again!

I spend a lot of time, effort and money on my skin, so isn’t it reversing this hard work when I wear make-up?

RE-POST: Why your moisturiser could be damaging your skin!

Whenever I would say this to my clients they would always look at me shocked and tell me ‘I’ve been told to cleanse, tone & moisturise for my entire life!’ From an early age we’re constantly taught to moisturise our skin to stop it drying out, but this actually is doing more damage than good.
